Young. Hungry. Visionary. Chris Zadeh saw a future few could ever imagine possible. When he presented his idea--coding a new core banking engine in the cloud--bankers laughed. They scoffed. Then they rejected his revolutionary idea outright. They said,

"The cloud's not safe."

"Who do you think you are--telling us how to run our banks?"

"And who the hell is ever going to put a bank on the cloud?"

Chris Zadeh and his team of underdogs knew the answer: everyone. They also knew the cloud wasn't just safe, it was the future of banking. And more than anything, he knew exactly who he and his team were: they were Ohpen, the first software company in the world to put a bank on the cloud.

Together, this band of brothers harnessed their give-it-all mentality, fighting spirit, and bold vision to change how the world banks. In this surprising, unfiltered, outstandingly told story, Banking the Cloud takes the reader on an epic journey--from thrill of discovery, to the devastation of defeat, and to an exhilarating and last-minute rally that changed everything.

This is a remarkable tale of what it takes to innovate, survive, and ultimately win no matter what the obstacle. You'll find it impossible to put this book down.
